Yes, I said crazy, folks. Crazy like my pal Erin there. Yup, I think that's what I needed; a challenge. A challenge from Erin who said that Level 2 of The Shred is easy, and a challenge that my stepmom gave me on facebook. She said, "I'm guessing this is going to be a good Shred today, based on the Rant!!"
That's what I needed to get me going.
I popped in the video - and I went. I followed along with Amazon woman and did it all. Sure, I stopped for a 3 count on the plank squats (those are some hard core ab/cardio work!), I also stopped for another 3 count during that last ab session -- those are torture! But I did it. I did the entire thing on level 2 (-6 seconds). Success.
I didn't feel like I was going to die. I hurt, sure, but death was not a thought. I was sweaty, I was a little sore (those v lifts at the end are a killer!) but man, do I ever feel good about myself for doing it! I need that challenge and motivation!!! Thanks Erin and Karen, you gave me something that I didn't even realize was lacking!
